Lines and wrinkles appearing on the face are one of the most common indications of aging. While these skin changes are definitely unwelcome, they are also quite natural. Thankfully, you don’t have to have these signs of aging linger on your skin. Biotech Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center offers dermal fillers, a non-surgical way of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are different types of anti-aging products that work to increase skin volume and the minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What do dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of different signs of aging. They are safe and effective at plumping thinning lips, filling or enhancing sunken areas of the face, and filling in recessed scars. These fillers can also remove or minimize wrinkles under the eyes and soften or fill in static wrinkles.
Are dermal fillers like Botox?
No. These two treatments are quite different in both their ingredients and the way that they work. Botox relaxes the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Dermal fillers are injectable substances that minimize wrinkles by promoting skin thickness or the stimulation of collagen, a protein that gives your skin it’s structure.
Would I make a good candidate for a dermal filler treatment?
If you are in good general health and not suffering from a skin infection, you may make a good candidate for treatment with dermal fillers. If you currently have a skin infection or acne breakout, you will need to resolve this condition prior to your dermal filler treatment.
You will also need to refrain from taking any blood thinners that could lead to complications after your filler injection. You should also inform us of any other medications that you may be taking that could affect your treatment outcome.
How long do dermal filler treatments last?
Since there are many different kinds of fillers, there is no one answer for this question. However, dermal fillers generally offer excellent results that are long-lasting. Most fillers can give you results lasting from several months to a year or more.
